I highly recommend The Benchmark Inn. The room was impeccable and stocked with brilliantly placed amenities. Dan and Daniel, the hosts, were wonderfully welcoming and so interesting and fun to talk with. The breakfast was such a delightful and delicious surprise! I will definitely be returning soon!


No better B&B in Provincetown

4.8 on August 20, 2017

Just an extraordinarily well-run B&B by Dan and Daniel. From the freshly baked morning pastries to the updated and comfy rooms, this place has become my favorite place to stay in Provincetown after having stayed at least a half dozen other places over the years


Always Excellent

A perfect stay in Provincetown

5 on August 08, 2017

This was my third time at Benchmark (and my 10th time in Provincetown). This is by far the best B&B I have stayed at over the years.


Third time at The Benchmark Inn

4.4 on August 08, 2017

I keep going back to The Benchmark Inn in Provincetown because of the fine hospitality by Dan & Daniel, the lovely Inn and wonderful breakfasts, and the perfect location for walking the town. The Penthouse is my favorite; it's spacious, and the view of the bay is relaxing and beautiful. The choice of accommodation can make or break a trip. There's no risk when staying at The Benchmark.


Un bon séjour très confortable.

Great week in Provincetown

4.8 on July 29, 2017

We stayed in the Penthouse Suite and it was ideal. The suite was nicely appointed, very comfortable and spotless with spectacular views of Provincetown. The innkeepers Dan and Daniel was very friendly and made us feel welcome and at home. Very nice breakfast, fresh fruit, home baked pastries and breads, superb coffee! We would definitely stay there again. Henry & Roy


Impecable as always

I have stayed at the Benchmark Inn for the last 15 years. It is always first rate. Daniel and Dan are very attentive hosts and continue to make upgrades to the property.
